Tanya Finken

As a child, Tanya lived in many midwestern states and was able to admire the handiwork of the pioneer women that had first settled those areas.  Now, from the comfort of her own home, she is able to browse the Internet and be inspired by the many women and men who take the time to share their knowledge and craft with others.  She is now contributing back to the quilting community as a member of the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild and through her blog www.squaresandtriangles.com.   While she has a background in Biology, and has worked in labs and been an educator, she is currently the full time mom to four wonderful children, the wife of a supportive husband, a runner, a fabric collector, and a quilter.
